Artist's Loft Jumbo Circle TemplateI love painting abstract images involving circles. However, I just am not good at painting a circle freehand. They end up more egg or oval shape. I was thrilled to find the blue plastic Artist's Loft Jumbo Circle Template. There are a range of circles here from 1 1/4" up to a large 3 1/2" in size. Each one is clearly labeled with its size in inches and mm. It also has a pair of cross-hairs so you can see right where the center of each side is.
The plastic is sturdy and reasonably thick, so if you press it down and are careful your ink shouldn't escape outside of the ring.
Well recommended. The template does what it's supposed to do. It helps you make perfectly round circles, of exactly the size you need, with a minimum of fuss. A great addition to any artist's toolbox.
The only bizarre thing about this template is that I can't find it anywhere on the web! Amazon doesn't have it. A Google search doesn't find any images of it! Even Michael's website doesn't have it. I bought this in person at a Michael's store - maybe that's the only way to get it? Very unusual in our modern day and age.
